I feel like a hyperactive child xD
I would take on easier colors - basic colors, not genetic combos. That way you'd know what you'd be getting. Pairing a white and a black will not give you black-white combo - not unless they have that mutation which combines those colors. Otherwise you'll only end up with a rainbow of multis.

There is WAY too much work involved in properly breeding bettas so breed what appeals to you. And as far as breeding something marketable.. people usually break even and that is AFTER they have established themselves as a breeder of quality fish. Black and white is not easy for a pro.. let alone a raw beginner.

I suggest you get a pair of something you like and do one spawn to see if you really want to do any more. One spawn can turn into a few hours of work every night and that is not always everybodies cup of tea.

Black and white are going to give you probably multi. Depending on the type of black and what is in the genetics of the white. Look for a genetic dump ..

Ugh! Please read some articles on how color is determined by the 4 color layers on a betta. Blue and orange will produce multi as well.

~Puts hands up~ I didn't say the orange and teal thingie xD I'm still looking into it. I have a hard time understanding Betta genetics sometimes, yes I've looked at the thread before and been on countless sites.
